We are enjoying the beautiful weather and good fishing this week! The best walleye fishing during midday has been found around edges of rock reefs. Anglers have been anchored, jigging with a 3/8 oz jig and a minnow in 26′-30′ of water. In the mornings and evenings, shallower areas just outside of Pine Island and Morris Point in 10′-15′ have been good. A variety of sizes between 14â€-26â€ walleyes are being caught.
No license required!
This weekend is the Minnesota DNR’s Take a Kid Fishing Weekend. Minnesota residents 16 and older fish can fish without a license when they accompany an angler younger than 16 this weekend June 8-10, on Minnesota waters. Teach a kid to fish today!

Captain Troy and his crew reel in some
nice walleyes and saugers this week.
Oak Island Location
It has been a good fishing week here on Oak Island and the weather has been spot on. 70-80 degrees, light wind, beautiful! Anglers have been finding some nice walleyes near rock pile shorelines during the day. Jigging with a 3/8 oz jig in 12′-20′ of water using a minnow for bait. Lots of bait fish and large walleyes are being seen in the shallows. Many areas around Falcon Island have been good.
Pike & Bass
The pike and bass fishing has been HOT! HOT! HOT! this week in the weedy bays. Lots and lots of pike have been found in several different locations. Find a weedy bay and start throwing some casts using spinner bait or crank bait and you should have luck. Look for 6-8 feet of water and the more weeds you can find the better. For Smallmouth Bass, casting spinner baits tight to shore along rocky shorelines with round boulders has worked best.
Muskie season is just around the corner
It won’t be long and we will be starting to target the wild muskie. June 16 is opening day on both the Minnesota and Ontario side of the lake this year.
